Longer kickstand?

Hey guys, since I've put on the Elka shock, Kyle link, and 190/55 tire, my bike leans over farther alot more on the sidestand. What do you guys do to correct that? I know Sato made a titanium adjustable one, are there any other options?

Have the same problem since I also have the Kyle link.
Contact Scott's Motorcycle Service and order the forged aluminum adjustable side stand kit.
It can be adjusted 1" shorter or longer than OEM length.
It weighs 261 gm without spring.

Ahh. I was trying to figure out why my bike was suddenly leaning over further. I noticed some slop in the stand, about 1/4" at the bottom, but noticed that on a couple Honda's. I took it apart, cleaned it, pinched it in the vice a little.. nothing.

Then I realised, after reading this post, that I put a 190/55 on before my last trip to help with the handling. This tire is 9.5mm taller than the 190/50 so I guess that explains it.

You sure notice it when the bike is on a slight slope and beside other bikes

Guess I won't worry about it any more. Just carry a thick plate with me if needed.

I had the same problem when I installed my Ohlins rear shock, I had my stock kickstand lengthened, took it down to the local welder and he cut and added to it.

That works for me. No clearance issues when up?

Thanks for the link CBR400RR. If you are going to advertise, I'd sure like to see you move up to the 'Vendor' status. It's only fair to the rest of our favorite members, like rc51parts.com, Riders Discount. Plenty of us have used the mentioned members to buy things, and they are great! Recently one of our non-vendor members was banned, maybe you know about that, cause he was asking for sales from members without his vendor membership. Just FYI.

I'm just going to weld my own kickstand, but I think the billet ones look cool.

Sorry I will delaet my post, and as far as welding a stock stand you get no adjustability with it like mine do with 5 diffrent settings for diffrent tire and suspension changes.

I'm just saying that, cause I made a bit of a blunder that I would probably reverse if I could. I bought a new system from a member who wasn't a vendor. I've been pretty down-low about it, don't want to be unfair to our supporting vendors by giving endorsements. After my purchace, the whole vendor thing was being discussed, now have a pretty firm position about it.
